    she is going to not bother to call a vote and just say the house has passed the senate bill.

    And she's right, it has. But it is not as simple as that. The house passed a healthcare bill AND the Senate passed a healthcare bill. Under normal circumstances, they would conference to iron out the differences in the bills and return the finished product to both houses for a final vote. Then it would go to the POTUS. So, technically, she's right, healthcare has passed.

    However the reality of the situation is far from 'technically'. The Dems were hoping to take advantage of this technicality in order to bypass another vote in the Senate, but I don't think it's going to work.

    It is NOT legal for Pelosi to claim it is passed. And if she gets it past this way it will be challenged.

    I long for the days when all we had to worry about was the administration detaining terrorists and listening in on their communications.

    I swear ... if Drudge doesn't take down that God-awful picture of her soon I'm going to scream in fright!

    :eek:

    That woman has a face like an enema bag on a sea hag!

    Besides that, I personally don't think she has the votes. She wants America to think she does! Only time will tell .....

    The slaughter rule will only lead to a USSC challenge, in short, not happening.

    There's no proof of this, of course.
